About Me

I am dedicated to helping working women find methods to manage their wellbeing and transform into healthier selves.

I graduated with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. Then, worked for leading companies like TI and Apple, where I absolutely loved my work. However,  I gave my more than 100% to both work and family. As a result, experienced cycles of intense hard work, burnout, and Autoimmune health issues.

Hence, I dived deeper into understanding health, well-being and invested in rebuilding my health. Therefore, I am mindful of the challenges that working women can face in taking care of their healths. Now, I find purpose in guiding them to thrive professionally but at no cost to their wellbeing. 

I am a mom to a 4-year-old boy, and another one is due in November. I love my work as well as every bit of parenting. That is why my coaching programs are designed very sensitively for working women who might be pressed for time.

I have been coaching women for nearly a year now and have seen them thrive, grow, and plan for their wellbeing.

I hold a health coaching certification from Dr. Sears Health Institute and, true to the institute’s teachings, offer science-backed information to the women I coach.

Testimonials

"Sakshi’s wellness course has changed the way I think about myself and my family’s wellness. She has done so much research on various wellness topics and is amazing at presenting you with a distilled and *actionable* summary. With her help, I have established daily habits that stick — and what’s more...

, these good habits have spread to my family members. I am so happy to say that now, with Sakshi’s guidance under my belt, I am no longer procrastinating on taking care of my wellness.”

Azadeh Moini, Engineering Manager, Apple Inc. 

"Sakshi is a highly recommended wellness coach given her own challenges and wins on her own wellness. She is very passionate on helping and inspiring others. I was skeptical at first when I participated on the program because a lot of information is already on the web. Sakshi's approach changed all that. ...

Program is well structured and the topics are presented with scientific background and tied to how it applies on our day to day practices. Her strategy on having sit down topics and incorporating activities (ie challenges, pantry audit, etc) was really good.

She covered overall wellness as opposed to just targeting weight loss etc. She touched on exercise,mediataion, sugar, neurotoxins (which I’ve never heard before), sleep, relationship with food, work life balance, self care and many more random things that participants ask her about. Very much willing to spend time researching more to support the needs of the group. Towards the end the group became a tribe supporting each other’s back on wellness with Sakshi as our glue c,”). Attending her program have improved not just my overall wellness but the family as well.”

Margaret Salvado, Engineering Manager, Apple Inc. 

"I participated in a wellness program with a focus on transitional women, life or career, hosted by Sakshi. She structured the program to have a one-hour weekly class with a small group of women and a 30-minute 1:1 session for 12 weeks. She introduced wellness concepts, from nutrition balance to neurotoxic food and from meditation to setting one priority....

, all of which are essential and interconnected. Sakshi cited scientific research and evidence in discussions. As an engineer, I found it especially convincing and intrigued. Sakshi’s generosity in sharing her own experience and her genuine personality were the keys to connect me quickly. I was always full of tears and laughters in our 1:1’s when we discussed personal wellness goals. Sakshi committed to be our cheerleader in the first class and she did a phenomenal job in keeping this promise.”

Chia-Fang Chiang, Engineering Manager, Apple Inc. 

"I was fortunate to participate in Sakshi’s 12 week wellness coaching program (for women in transition) through my employer. Overall, I highly recommend this program for other tech employees (especially women) in the Bay area. Frankly, about 70% of ...

the content would apply to employees of any gender especially in a career/personal transition. Topics like imposter syndrome, stress management, closing the stress cycle, nutrition, and physical fitness are gender agnostic and applicable to most employees.

Similar to one of the concepts presented in the class, I found it to be a “time multiplier”. I was overall more efficient/productive than I would have been and so got a good return on my time and effort investment. Also, the assignments were effective in reinforcing the concepts rather than feeling like an overhead. Even on my busiest days, by week 3 of the program, I would look forward to the group and 1:1 sessions.

For me the highlight of the class was the section on Stress management – closing the stress cycle. The realization that I could “actively” close my stress and discovering the tools that worked for me was empowering. We all recognize that being stressed is not good, I just always assumed that it was inevitable in our jobs or required balancing with rest/vacations etc. I expect that the tools I learned and practiced in this course, will (with regular practice) be effective in both short-term and long-term stress management.

Sakshi’s data-based approach of answering the why something was important before telling us the what/how to fix it was very effective in getting us invested in the proposed solutions. The 1:1 sessions were truly tailored to meet our needs and help us as individuals overcome the roadblocks we were facing. Sakshi also did a great job of resonating themes with the audience with examples that were relevant to us. I also liked how she set up the exercise and stress-closing challenges to grow in scope but still be manageable over the course of the challenge.

What I loved most about this class is that I came out with specific lifestyle habits/tools that work for me to live a healthier life and most importantly mitigate and manage my stress better. I truly believe I am bringing a better version of myself to my family and work as a result of what I have learned in this class.”

Kirti Ahmad, Engineering Manager, Apple Inc. 

"The benefits I got out of Sakshi's wellness program: 1) it helped me to focus and improved efficiency during work through one priority 2) It educated me on brain health and how to clean brain fog and have a clear mind through good sleep and ...

relevant nutritions 3) It educates me on the stress impacts and how to improve the relationship with it by closing the stress cycle through meditation, exercise, quality family time, ME time and whatever works for me.

In general, I am a big fan of health and wellness. As I’m already doing a lot of healthy living practices, e.g. exercise and healthy eating, this program resonates a lot on me. To me, what’s most useful is the systematic education on the scientific knowledge of health facts (for example, nutritions) and the awareness of wellness issues (for example, I wasn’t aware that stress was my root cause of bloating but rather thought I ate too much.) I also like doing the challenges in the program, where I also surprisingly found the impact of sugar on me. With all those knowledge, I’m more mindful to go with a healthy lifestyle, for myself and my family.”

Shang Wang, Engineering Manager, Apple Inc. 

"Sakshi is an amazing wellness coach, she is understanding and patient yet keeps you accountable. I participated in her 12 week wellness course and learned valuable life skills that have truly helped me in both my professional and personal life...

She personalized and tweaked my wellness plan each week to provide me with the best results and she truly cares about my life and overall health. **Ask her to guide you through a breathing exercise and/or meditation, she’s amazing at it and has such a soothing voice/demeanor.**

Nutrition

With an abundance of knowledge on nutrition and diet today, it can add to confusion and anxiety. In this program, we will go over how to make eating healthy not-so-complex. We will also cover how to approach nutritional information with a scientific perspective yet simple.

Exercise

Exercising can be more straightforward than we perceive it, mainly because of our notions of being busy with family, kids, work, or more. So I work with women to understand the hiccups they might be facing, ranging from feeling busy to having low self-confidence.

Stress Management

Women’s Wellness program pays special attention to mental well-being . We will learn the science behind stress and tangible stress-management tools that can help you manage stress at work or home.
